We are sad to announce that The Festival of Quilts has been postponed until 2021 because of the Coronavirus. The next festival will take place 29 July – 1 August 2021.

Even though the festival cannot go ahead this year, the competitions can! Take part in an exciting virtual competition, the theme for the Young Quilter/Embroiderer category is ‘Reuse, Reduce, Recycle, Rethink’. Judging will take place remotely from photographs. The age categories are 5-9, 10–13 and 14–18 yrs. 1st Prize in each age group will win £150. Shortlisted quilts will feature in a one-off Festival of Quilts magazine in September 2020. The submission deadline is midnight on Friday 3rd July 2020 – don’t miss out! Visit the website for more information:
